Hey! Hold on just a minute, J'th.
What makes you think the majority of the public prefers fabric? And exactly what do you suggest, as a better use, for the millions of tons of cow hide, that's produced each year, as a by product of the meat industry? Everyone I know prefers leather to cloth. Are you really sure that the cow suffers, as the skin is removed? IT'S DEAD!!!
Are you going to employ the millions of people employed in the leather industry? No?
And please, don't bring up Ed Begley. He's certifiable, and should be commited.
Now, if I can just lay my hands on one of those narwal steering wheels. MMM MMMM MMM!
